Yes, that's a side-effect of the way client/server works.  Basically,
when you ask the client to export into tmp/cvscache, the client asks the
server to checkout into tmp/cvscache, but tmp doesn't exist on the
server so the checkout fails.

Yep, that's what you need to do.

I don't understand that bit, though (knowing nothing about Ant).  Would
you care to elucidate?
